Quick Post About a Quick Breakfast

14 Mar

Today is a quick afternoon post kind of day.  Most people have made a smoothie before (right?) but everyone has their own preferences or things they like to add to create a more nutritious snack or breakfast.  I’m not feeling well lately – for the last 3-4 weeks, some time before this vegan challenge.  I might have a touch of the flu or some other affliction (went to the doc yesterday).  So when I’m not feeling like putting a lot of effort into a morning meal, I make a smoothie!

My basic everyday smoothie favourite is:
1/2 cup of apple/pear juice (no sugar added, unfiltered is good)
1/2 cup water
1/2 banana (not frozen, or frozen – up to you)
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen mango
1 tbsp flax oil (for omega 3 and 6)

Sometimes I add some ground flax for the fibre – other people like to use hemp or chia seeds.  There are so many little add-ins for smoothies to up the nutrient factor.

I also like to add a special energizing greens powder that is nutrient-PACKED!
With the greens powder and strawberry combo, you can expect a brown-ish colour…kind of gross-looking but tasty!

Another favourite of mine is a tasty banana-cocoa smoothie.  It makes me feel like I’m eating dessert any time the mood strikes!

1 cup or more almond milk or coconut milk (diluted or not)
1 ice cube
1 tablespoon cocoa
1-2 tsp maple syrup to taste

What’s your favourite smoothie add-in?  I’d love to know how to make my smoothies a nutritious meal in drink form. 😉
